It's almost exactly 1 month until VLV and I'm SUPER excited!!! Our hotel and flight are booked and we have our 4 day passes so we're all ready to go!!
As you know from my past Viva Countdown, I have been trying to plot out what to wear. With my recent Ebay purchases I think I just about have my wardrobe together. I have decided to go ahead and wear the dress from my last post. I'll probably wear it to the car show. I guess it really just depends on the weather.
I bought this cocktail dress also.
The picture REALLY does not do the dress justice! When I'm wearing it, it fits perfectly! It has a metal back zipper but no label. I think it may have been hand made. I think I'll add a cinch belt to it and a bullet bra since the bust is a little pointy. I thinking of purchasing this shoe from Modcloth. I think the color perfectly matches the blue in the dress. If I get those shoes I need to somehow find a belt that matches. Vintage shoes are preferable but I can never really find anything that I like in my size!
Honey bought me this dress as a Christmas gift!!
After much debate, I have decided to go reproduction for my swimsuit. Actually, I'm still leaning more towards a playsuit. I think I'll be more comfortable in a playsuit. I'm narrowing down a few options. I hope to order one next week.
So as you can see I'm well on my way with my Viva wardrobe. If I follow the plan I laid out in this post, I only need dungarees, a couple of halter tops and a swimsuit! That makes me feel a little less frantic about everything.
Oh! Sidebar... I am on the hunt for a crinoline but I have a question. How long should your crinoline be? I Normally wear it so that it is even with the hem of my skirt but I've seen so many different crinoline lengths I'm not sure any more. I've seen long ones that come about 2 inches below the sirt./dress. I've seen short ones where the skirt is longer than the crinoline. Which is correct? I'm sure that the ladies of the past had an opinion about which length was appropriate.
Once VLV rolls around I'm going to be in desperate need of a vacation. Starting this week I'll be teaching 21 ballet classes a week!!!! That's a whole lot of baby ballerinas and moody teenagers a week!! I would have earned my vacation by the end of March!
That's all for now I guess.
Have a fabulous day dolls!
